Dazed's ultimate guide to US creativity
As part of our new summer US project States of Independence we've invited our favourite 30 American curators, magazines, creatives and institutions to takeover Dazed for a day.
Time to get trippy: radical record label-meets-club experience Fade to Mind are staging a mid-week takeover at Dazed. That means party recordings from NYC to your laptop, Kingdom’s top 10 Vine singers, exclusive bootlegs to download and more from the unstoppable crew.
Last week, Fade to Mind hosted a one-off club night at Brooklyn’s home for underground music after-hours, Verboten. Featuring a live performance by Phuture, the night also saw appearances from L-Vis 1990, Prince William as well as a set from that other member of alternative clubland’s royal family (and Fade to Mind co-founder), Kingdom. Here, he premieres a recording of that set, which twists the crème of 2014 hip hop – Young Money's "Senile", Jeremih's "Don't Tell 'Em", YG's "Do It To Ya", Tyga and Bieber's "Wait For a Minute" – with his signature unpredictable FX and kicking low-end beats.
